Munchie Mug Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
I really hate the toddler snack cups they sell at the store with plastic tops that catch on little hands. It's like trying to stick your fingers through the top of a "Wet Ones" container...painful. Thank goodness for Munchie Mug and their revolutionary snack cup for kids. Here's what their website has to say.

"Munchie Mug is 100% proudly made in America with safety in mind. Made of tough, durable, and recyclable No. 5 polypropylene from American suppliers, the plastic and color additives are approved for direct food contact according to FDA 21 CFR, sections 177.1520 and 170.39. Munchie Mug comes with a 16 oz. plastic jar that effectively holds 10 oz. of dry foodstuffs and is suitable for children 10 months and older. The unique patent pending lid screws on tight, assuring that it stays on and the food stays in. The Munchie Mug has been field tested for over a year, and has held up well to the satisfaction of its users."

Here is how it works... First, you unscrew the lid and put in the snack. (Simple enough, right?) :-) "Actually, the Munchie Mug features a screw on top that makes it very difficult for children to open. Because of the locking feature of the threads, the easiest way to open the Mug is to insert the four fingers of your left hand into the top of the mug while grasping the outside with your thumb. Holding the jar in your right hand, turn the lid clockwise in the direction the thumb is pointing to easily open the mug. It is not necessary to overly tighten the lid." (This is not as difficult as it sounds, trust me.)
The cloth opening on the Mug actually remains closed at all times, that is, until the child wants a snack. The child can easily and comfortably put his/her entire hand through the soft, non-scratchy opening to grab the snack. The hand is then freely withdrawn through the opening while holding the snack. When the hand is removed, the cloth opening closes by itself. When the Mug is not being used, you can screw on the enclosed (solid) stay fresh lid.

To clean the mug, you can either wash it by hand or put it on the top rack of your dishwasher. (And don't forget to wash it before your first use as well.) The cloth will hold some moisture after washing. To dry it, press against both sides of the fabric at the same time with two pieces of dry cloth or paper towels. Blot it a few times and the fabric should be dry enough to use.

My Take
The first thing I noticed was actually after I washed the Mug for the first time. I followed the instructions to dry the cloth top (since I had washed it by hand), and the cloth actually dried very quickly when I blotted it with a towel. I thought for sure I would still have to wait a while in order to use it, but I could have put the snack in the Mug right then without worrying about any lingering wetness. Very cool! As for using it, I can actually get my hand into the mug through the cloth opening. The cloth closes right around my hand so no snack would be able to escape, and it is *so* soft. No more scratched, sore hands! The top screws on and off easily for an adult, but there's no way a toddler would be able to unscrew it.

Pros:
  • It has a secure screw-on top with an easy-to-grip handle.
  • The fabric closure is very soft.
  • It's very easy to clean and top-rack dishwasher safe.
  • You can put many different types of snacks in here--cereal, dried fruit, crackers, anything!
  • The stay-fresh lid is included so you can keep snacks fresh when not using the mug.
  • The mug is a great size, 16oz, so even the hungriest of toddlers will have enough to eat.
  • It's made of 100% recyclable materials and eliminates the waste created by using plastic baggies.
  • It's made of all FDA food-grade compliant materials.
  • It's made in the USA!
  • It comes in three great colors.
Cons:
  • It's a slightly expensive up-front cost, but imagine the amount you'll be saving on plastic baggies!
Price: You can buy a Munchie Mug for $15.95 (USA shipping included) ($$$$)

Overall: I give the Munchie Mug a 9.5/10!

One very lucky reader will win their very own Munchie Mug in their choice of color (pink, blue or yellow).

I really like that the top is cloth- all the other ones are plastic and my son doesn't like reaching his hand in there.

I like that it contains safe materials for children and that you can keep food fresh in the mug by using a solid cover when the mug is not being used by your child.
